does it fit in with what we're doing in san francisco and the bay area with medical planning. so yesterday we had an opportunity to go out and see a shock trauma platoon set up on ocean beach, had them running demonstrations and asking questions of the doctors and nurses there. we also saw a landing craft on the beach. yes, it can bring a tractor, it can bring personnel, it can also evacuate patients. it can also bring resources that we otherwise wouldn't be able to get into the city. general spies has said it many times, they have the ability to go around, over, i think through was one of those as well, any of the obstacles we find in our way. that's a resource we in san francisco really have to capitalize on. as i look at all these things, frankly i just was talking to somebody this morning, this is like the toy store of resources for me. when you sit on this ship, you look around, yes, it's a ship, it carries helicopters. it is so much more than that. it's a platform that does so many things. it's like your i phone. you ask it what you want it to do and there's probabl

points on that. the first is that all disasters are local. the folks here in san francisco are going to be in charge from the minute the disaster happens and i think that that's really critical to understand. the local authorities evaluate the situation on the ground and execute what locally is available, then they evaluate shortfalls and what they have and then generate those requirements up through that defined chain of command, as i mentioned earlier. then once those agencies determine what those requirements are, they are given back to the city who employs those as they think they need to be deployed because, again, they are the eyes and understand the local situation. i think going through this that the navy and the marine corps, we're used to being in charge whenever we show up and we're not going to be in this situation. i think it's important for us to understand that and we do and i think we, if we were employed in this certainly would understand that particular chain of command and would be able to fit right in and execute as required by the local situation. >> let me rei

and acknowledge so it's a part of law in the city and county of san francisco. that to me affirms our commitment to what this experiment would look like. to make a product of the discretionary act by those elected. so goes with that experiment the tentativeness of what this commitment would actually be. why is why -- which is why i would like to see what the mayor's office and board of supervisors to look at those forms of discipline and what they look like to us. >> i recognize the fear -- and i think it's a fear, not even a concern that professor simon has creating an assessment tool that can be manipulated for low-level offenses or drug offenses that can end up like the impact much like we have today with the commercial bail system. but i believe there is a way that we can create validated risk assessment tools that would look at the areas of concern. whether we are talking about the likelihood for reoffending in a violent way or the likelihood of not showing up in court. i think there are systems in place that show a tremendous amount of promise. and we can continue to go down that path to
for campaigns in san francisco, whether as an independent, fundraiser for independent expenditures or directly for campaigns of elected officials. to me that does not mean we overlook what our responsibility is as board of supervisors that we make sure that we don't have apparent conflict of interest and gaining of our rules through our own personal benefit. i believe what we have here as an example that mr. murphy has been involved in shows that we would be remissed in the backstop of his appointment. i urge you to not pass this motion. we can have the mayor come back with another person to look at our port and be on our port commission, one who i believe can stand up to scrutiny about how he or she has been able to represent the city in a way that understand our rules and abides by them. thank you. >> colleagues, is there further discussion? president chiu? >> thank you, colleagues, first of all i want to thank mr. murphy for his service to the city and has already been described he has contributed to our city. from my purpose we have not had any issues. there have been a number of allegati
